For nearly 10 years, social media has been in the spotlight and, at the same time, a thorn in the side of many companies. Retailers in particular are constantly reminded of social media’s influence.

Instead of steeping themselves in expert tips and hacks, companies would be wise step back and remember what’s at the core of the social interaction: Social platforms are merely tools for achieving a higher goal, which is creating an engaged customer base of brand evangelists.

The mall of the future: It's nothing like today

Forget the fluorescent-lit indoor mall that's been synonymous with shopping for years. The future of retail will look starkly different 25 years out. Full-body scanners that take your measurements, and recommend the clothes that best fit your body. Seamless checkouts that can be done from inside the dressing room or on your mobile phone, eliminating the need to wait in line. Innovations like these are already threatening to become mainstream. And, as consumers shift a larger chunk of their spending toward the Web—where they're offered a seemingly endless pipeline of products—experts say bricks-and-mortar locations need to undergo a complete makeover to stay relevant in future decades.

Why Retailers Keep Sending You Catalogs

Many things made with paper have become relics because of computers and the Internet: the Rolodex, multi-volume encyclopedias, even physical maps. Now take a look in your mailbox or somewhere around your house. There's a good chance you'll see a shopping catalog, maybe a few of them now that it's the holiday season. So why, in the digital age, are they still around? Source: Here's Why Retailers Keep Sending You Catalogs : NPR Rights to all content (text, images, videos etc.) with post source.

A brief history of Black Friday

The modern use of "Black Friday" didn't come from: sales records going from red ink (losses) to black ink (profits), a stock market scam in 1869 (that did happen, though), employees calling in sick the day after Thanksgiving to have a four-day weekend, the American slave trade. Thankfully, the truth is far more interesting. The term "Black Friday" originates with Philadelphia traffic police in the mid-20th century - for the day following the Thanksgiving holiday every year when the traffic in downtown (Center City) Philadelphia became almost unmanageable . They called it "Black Friday," because of the massive traffic jam that they dealt with all day due to shoppers, and then all night due to the Army-Navy football game. Every 'Black Friday,' no traffic policeman was permitted to take the day off. The division was placed on 12 tours of duty, and even the police band was ordered to Center City. It was not unusual to see a trombone player directing traffic." Source: Black Friday: a brief history of madness and discounts Rights to all content (text, images, videos etc.) with post source.
